Six homes along Metro route 22

The Alaska Junction, Morgan Junction, and all around West Seattle

View as Map

Previously a bus that took riders between West Seattle and downtown, King County Metro route 22 is now a kind of a shuttle around the West Seattle, connecting various neighborhoods on that little peninsula—including areas that are less well-served by transit otherwise, running about once an hour between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. on weekdays (and a little less often on weekends).

Starting in the denser transit hub in the Junction, the route starts in a straight line down California Avenue and through the Morgan Junction, cruising through Gatewood before cutting east to south Delridge, past Westwood Village, and making an irregular-shaped loop around Roxbury Heights, Arbor Heights, and Arroyo Heights to the south before heading back north.

This means it connects not only to the bus-dense Alaska Junction, but to the C Line (on its way to the Vashon Island ferry) or the 21, which doesn’t venture as far to the south.

We found six notable homes along the route.

Between the Alaska and Morgan junctions, this stately, three-bedroom Craftsman with a sunny portico and pretty brickwork is listed for $950,000.

Just off the Morgan Junction, this cheery four-bedroom Craftsman with a trellised front porch is listed for $750,000. Inside, huge gathering spaces feature hardwoods and a grand cased opening; a finished daylight basement adds extra space and a den with cozy window shelves.

8426 31st Ave SW
Seattle, WA 98126

Near Westwood Village, this three-bedroom home (which according to the listing was designed by Ellsworth Lovell) looks warm and cozy throughout, but especially in the den—with exposed-beam, vaulted ceilings and a wood stove for a full-on cabin vibe—and a wood-lined sitting area with built-ins off the master.

5. 3614 SW 107th Street

3614 SW 107th St
Seattle, WA 98146

This bright Arbor Heights rambler, tucked up a hill and surrounded by trees, keeps things bright with large windows and French doors. The kitchen and laundry areas feature terra cotta floors; most other areas of the home have hardwoods. The densely tree-lined backyard is big and private, but still appears to get plenty of sunlight. It’s asking $525,000, down $10,000 from when it was first listed.

6. 8420 22nd Ave SW

8420 22nd Ave SW
Seattle, WA 98106

This super-classic, three-bedroom Craftsman in the Roxhill area starts with an ornamental portico and opens up to a large living area with a very handsome brick fireplace. Thick moulding, the occasional built-in, and slightly-vaulted ceilings keep the look and feel of the 1924 house. It’s asking $539,000, down $10,000 from when it was first listed.
